Agudath Israel: Mesirah Overrides America’s Laws
(Occidental Observer) -- by John Graham --
In April, in Is observing the Mesirah prohibition compatible with being American? I discussed the threat posed to Americans generally by the Jewish tradition of Misirah. This prohibits Jews from telling the Civil Authorities of crimes being committed by other Jews. My interest was stimulated by realizing when studying the Madoff Affair that many financially sophisticated Jews suspected criminality, but did nothing.
In recent years increased consciousness of the issue of pedophilia, sexual abuse generally and drugs has driven most of the Jewish discussion of Mesirah. Some Jewish organizations like the Rabbinical Council of America have explicitly called for Mesirah to be overlooked in these cases.The latest news is that this laudable trend seems to be going into reverse.
One of America’s leading ultra-Orthodox groups has reaffirmed that its followers must consult a rabbi before going to law enforcement authorities with suspicions of sexual abuse committed by community members.Many States have laws mandating people in certain professional positions to report suspicions of abuse. The Agudath Israel position is that these should be ignored.
The admonitions, from speakers at a conference sponsored by Agudath Israel of America, came even though a recent rabbinic edict permits reporting such crimes to secular authorities…Rabbi Shalom Elyashiv, one of ultra-Orthodoxy’s foremost authorities on Jewish religious law, or Halacha. recently decreed that Jews with reasonable suspicions that a case of sexual abuse has occurred are permitted to go to secular law enforcement authorities, notwithstanding traditional religious prohibitions against mesirah, or informing on fellow Jews. (Ultra-Orthodox Group Affirms Abuse Cases Go First To Rabbi By Paul Berger The Jewish Daily Forward May 25 2011)
Rabbi David Zwiebel, Agudah’s executive vice president, told the conference that even mandated reporters — teachers, social workers and people in certain other professions who are required by law to promptly report any suspected cases of sexual abuse — should consult a rabbi before going to the police.The Forward found a District Attorney with courage:
Marlene Lynch Ford, the Ocean County prosecutor whose jurisdiction includes the large strictly Orthodox enclave of Lakewood, said that the advice given at the Agudah conference could violate New Jersey law.“…the law is incumbent on [all involved], if they have grounds for reasonable suspicion, to make disclosures.”
(The Brooklyn DA’s office was too terrified to be coherent, exciting the contempt of the remarkable Failed Messiah blog.)
Many in the Jewish Community find Agudath Israel’s stance outrageous, and The Forward quotes some of them.
But when Mesirah can apparently impede protecting even children who are Jewish from repulsive abuse, the rest of us might fairly ask:
What does it do in cases of general Jewish criminality inflicted on society as a whole?...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
More evidence that so much of Jewry is comprised of nothing more than an international ethnic racket and insular cult. And yet, led by American elites, these are the people that the Establishment of the post-WWII West has increasingly held up as the ultimate moral authority, and on whose behalf the U.S. Establishment is actually sending Americans to fight wars in the Middle East.
Because Americans were never properly grounded in the traditional Christianity of Western civilization as were the Europeans, and because the country has itslelf participated in the process of being slowly taken over by nests of money-worshipping vipers and politically correct authoritarians who hide behind various "moral" facades such as Judeo-Chirstian Zionism and multiculturalist artifice, we became the perfect "mark" for the Jewish cult and its lowlife collaborators to manipulate and subjugate. Next comes enslavement, similar to the enslaved U.S. Military sent to round after round of war with Islam on behalf of the Judeofascist predators and their agenda to use a "national security" state to enforce Jewish supremacism in both the Middle East and in the West (e.g. Homeland Security).
Recall what Bill Clinton's Secretary of State, the crypto-Jew Madeline Albright, said on behalf of the Bosnia offensive, warm up to later Clinton administration offensives in Iraq: "What's the point of having this superb military that you're always talking about if we can't use it?"
Well, we're using it now, and portions of it against the American people themselves, largely being run by an insular, criminal cult of Zionist thugs, apparently protecting itself with codes of silence like Misirah.
